We are on mission here at SparkFun to demonstrate the simplest ways to send sensor data using different wireless solutions. So far together we have explored sending sensor data over wifi, but what about longer range projects? Sure, we could create a mesh network of lots of boards talking to one another and it would be super rad, but for long range, why not use LoRa! In this tutorial we’re going to check out what it takes to send sensor data and output that data to a screen by using two SparkFun LoRa Thing Plus - expLoRaBLE development boards, and a couple of really nifty antennas; let us away!
